    Have you the latest graphics driver installed?

    If not go to www.nvidia.com you can get it there.

    I don't know if it makes a difference but is your desktop resolution at 1024x768 or higher?

    It might help to set it to 1024x768 if it isn't. My laptop has a 5200 and runs CIV (not all that well, but does run it)

    If installing the latest drivers doesn't work try going Start - Run - and typing dxdiag . Run the tests and see if it comes up with anything. You can download and install DirectX from the Microsoft website (don't forget to backup if you do this).

    If you have the Civ4 SDK installed I think you also need the DirectX SDK (though I might of just made that up-however I'm sure I downloaded it for some reason to do with Civ4(?)).

    GravityWave has good info. But on a side note, there are many programs that could mess with DirectX. About a year ago, I had to re-install DirectX after updating winamp.
